End of Summer

Although we have 90 degree weather here today, I know summer is coming to a close. Nights are cooler, mums and pumpkins are for sale at the markets. I do love the Fall, but am not really thrilled with out "endless" Winter. It is decent through Christmas, but oh January and February are soooooo long. I can't get outside and walk as much with the messy roads and getting dark so darn early. Guess I can put away my beach bag.....
and in October, this will be put away too. That's P out there, the boat on the left (with the back facing). He and our neighbor took the boats on the lake to fish. They were actually pretty far out, but I used the zoom and this was as close as I could get....

In other news:
1) The rental house is coming along. The basement and garage are all clean and nice. The bedroom painting is done and our son pulled out the old carpet and pad to get ready for the new installation next week. I still have to clean the bathroom (OMG how awful to clean after someone else) and the stove, and clean off the kitchen cabinets and touch them up with paint. A nice couple looked at it last night and really loved it. They did fill out an application and took along the lease to review. We're crossing fingers, toes, and paws at our house! Another single woman is coming over at 4pm. I keep wishing the couple would call, sign, and pay their deposit so I can be DONE for at least another year!!!
2) Blogger video worked pretty well. I did have to edit and shorten the video so it would upload without errors.
3) Pay it forward - If your one of my recipients, I will be getting those secret gifts out in the next week or so - I promise!!!!
Have a greet weekend everyone!!!!

I know....the Pay It Forward gift exchange has been stressing me out. I am still not totally excited about what I am doing, but I have already invested too much money into it to change my mind.

And the thought of cleaning someone else's bathroom......yuck! I hate cleaning my own bathroom. Hope the nice couple rents from you!

I'm glad the apartment is about finished and I hope the nice couple call you and rent it! It's amazing how your lake looks like the ocean! I imagine P was out real far in that picture because your zoom is so powerful. I can't wait to see what everyone is making for their projects!
